Present (all by Skype): Dieter Ackermann, Bertram Blank, Angela Bonaccorso, Lidia Ferreira, Ari Jokinen, Marek Lewitowicz. Excused: Hans Fynbo, Adam Maj, Paddy Regan.

Agenda: Elections of a new UEC.

The last elections took place on July 2010. New elections should have taken place during the summer 2012 but were postponed because of the Lisbon and Krakow topical meeting organization, October 2012 and July 2013 respectively and then the proximity with the end of the ENSAR contract and the need to write the final report (deliverable of the project April 2014).

After the beginning of the ENSAR2 contract (March 2016) it is decided to held new elections.

Members elected last time (18 July 2010) were Lidia Ferreira, Hans Fynbo, Adam Maj, Paddy Regan. Lidia Ferreira and Adam Maj have agreed on being candidates again to ensure some continuity.

Names of possible new candidates are proposed and the members decide to contact them informally while a message will be sent to the EURISOL UG mailing list to call for candidatures.

ADDENDUM to the minutes.

An AMENDMENT to the CHARTER is proposed by Y.Blumenfeld and C. Scheidenberger on 12th May 2016:? “A representative of the NUSPRASEN network of ENSAR2 is ex-officio member of the UEC without voting rights for the duration of the ENSAR2 contract.”

with the justification that

“The EURISOL User Group activities will be integrated into the activities of the NUSPRASEN network of ENSAR2. This will allow (partial) funding of the UEC activities through ENSAR2. It is therefore important that close interaction be maintained between the UEC and NUSPRASEN.”

Approved on 19th May 2016 by two thirds of the UEC: D. Ackermann, B. Blank, A. Bonaccorso, L. Ferreira, M. Lewitowicz, A. Maj.

H. Fymbo, A. Jokinen, P. Regan, abstained.
